My nomination goes to Nick Cave:

I don't believe in an interventionist God
But I know, darling, that you do
But if I did I would kneel down and ask Him
Not to intervene when it came to you

You'll go a long way to find lyrics more pifflingly pretentious than the above.

It's all in the delivery with Nick. Bad Seeds are one of the greatest live bands - with and without Mick Harvey and Blixa. You have to accept his over the top goth lounge act (or not).

Oh I'm not saying it's all bad (seeds) with Nick Cave, but in all honesty the first time I heard that I just fell about laughing.

Interventional God all the way -- total subatomic control. The quantum soup and effects (consensus reality) is not the real.
